The Denver Broncos said that they would stand for the national anthem starting Sunday.
At least one NFL team has bent the knee to President Trump’s defense of the flag and national anthem, as the Denver Broncos announced Thursday that they would stand for the national anthem on Sunday.
Players had sat or knelt during the national anthem in protest of conditions in the United States, and Trump had harshly criticized those participating.
After many of the players knelt in a demonstration against the president’s comments, Denver’s team will no longer participate in the protests:

“Starting Sunday, we’ll be standing together,” the players said in a message on Twitter that lamented the divisive times.
Opinion polls have demonstrated that most Americans agree with President Trump on the national anthem protests, and Denver’s acquiescence shows that the president is winning his war for the national anthem.
